Parker Bean was named the Big South Pitcher of the Week.

Liberty pitcher Parker Bean has been selected as the Big South Conference Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced this morning.

Parker Bean came within two outs of pitching a no-hitter in Liberty's 17-0 win over VMI, Sunday. The right-hander struck out a career-high 16 over 8 1/3 innings.  The lone hit by the Keydets came with one out in the ninth inning, as he held the Keydets to a .044 average at the plate. He did not allow a runner past second base in his outing.  The honor is the first Big South Pitcher of the Week award for the freshman.

Bean and the Flames will host the Richmond Spiders, tomorrow evening at the Liberty Baseball Stadium.  First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
